Nintendo’s Shigeru Miyamoto has said that the hardware giant reckons Switch could exceed the typical five-six year console cycle that we usually associate with the House of Mario.
Speaking during an investor Q&A, Shigsy noted the hybrid platform has a good chance of sticking around a lot longer than its predecessors, primarily due to the console’s unique attributes and the opportunities that developers have to leverage those features going forward.
‘Nintendo also has a system in place whereby the software developers focus on these hardware features in their development efforts for the continuation of the Nintendo Switch business,’ said Miyamoto-san. He went on to say that it would be ‘interesting’ if the company could extend the console’s lifecycle, concluding that ‘you should be looking forward to that.’
